TO INVESTIGATE EARNING POWER

Movement to Determine Average Wages Paid to Men in College.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A movement is on foot to investigate and, if possible, determine the average wage-earning capacity of the undergraduates in the University. This is being done with a view to the settling of two important questions, namely "How can the College best provide employment for self-supporting students?" and "What is the average earning capacity of men while in college?"

To throw light on these questions, individual statistics are being gathered. Letters containing a few pertinent and comprehensive questions are being sent to those students in the three upper classes living outside the yard. Those men who live in the Yard will be seen personally by J. Bovingdon '15, in whose hands this matter has been placed. The inquiry will reach only those men now in the College who were registered during the last academic year, 1912-13.

Often men desiring to attend Harvard hesitate because of a fear of their inability to support themselves during their stay. While only the exceptional man is capable of entire self-support, it is believed that this report will show that very many Harvard men are in large measure dependent upon their own earning ability.

The success, and consequent usefulness, of this undertaking depends upon the support of all College men.
